milli vanilli songs, it doesn't get better than kicking back on a cold night with a little "girl you know it's true." ♪ girl, you know it's true ♪ girl you know it's true >> not to mention even if beyonce did lip sync and, girl, you know it's true, she's got to be the best lip syncer on the planet. she looked amazing, sounded amazing. it wasn't like she turned the inauguration into an ashleigh simpson "snl" moment. ♪ on a monday i am waiting ♪ tuesday i am fading ♪ >> oof, so painful after all these years, still hurts.
2:01 am
speaking of painful to people who are apoplectic about whether beyonce lip synced talk to me after you got on the stage in front of the president of the united states and hundreds of thousands to sing the national anthem in 40-degree weather. that bomb is bursting in air on the ridiculist. thanks for watching.

"early start.start." >> we are completely live this morning. it is wednesday, january 23rd, 5:00 a.m. in the east. up first, bitter blistering freezing and deadly. >> reporter:s reports of at least four deaths in an arctic blast and the cold will not loosen its grip for a while. jennifer is following the severe cold from atlanta. >> i know you're probably wondering when are we going to start to see some warmer temperatures. we are still dealing with the bitter cold out there and this is still going to be dangerous. look at some of the windchills that have been reported over the last six hours. minus 20 in oakland, pennsylvania. look at the numbers for parts of the midwest. we have 7 degrees in minneapolis, certainly an improvement over the last couple days. but keep in mind we are still
2:03 am
talking about wind out there and it that wind is what's providing that deadly windchill. we talked about this over the last couple days. say if you're outside for roughly about ten minutes and minus 30 windchill, you could suffer frostbite. if you look across parts of the northeast, all that cold air has been spread over toward areas like pennsylvania as well as new york where we have a reading of 6 degrees right now in altoona, scranton, and you add in the wind, it feels like minus 6. for new york, i imagine going out to work this morning, it was mighty cold out there. my in us 1 feels like there. and for areas like portland, minus 14. so what is going to happen today? we still have this windchill advisory in place for parts of the upper midwest, the northern plain, we could still see the windchills dropping down to about minus 25. as we spread into areas like cleveland, up to buffalo, especially areas that are dealing with the lake-effect snow, it's going to feel like minus 10 to minus 120. so what this means is you really want to make sure you are putting on a lot of layers
2:04 am
outside if you work out doors, maybe you can try to see if you can go to work maybe next week sometimes. because you really need to avoid these conditions. we'll talk more about the lake effect though coming up in about 20 minutes. >> those numbers are eye popping. and from personal experience, it was really, really cold this morning. >> i know it was. a 22-year-old man facing assault charges following tuesday's shooting on the campus of lone star college in houston. three people were wounded, including a campus maintenance worker. another person on the scene was treated for what appeared to be a heart attack. students describe a scene of utter chaos on campus. some people hiding under desks, others just simply ran for their lives. even lavin dare rendera is liven houston. what happened and why? >> reporter: well, overnight, we have learned from authorities here in houston that they have charged 22-year-old carlton berry with aggravated assault and he's still being treated for
2:05 am
wounds that he suffered in the hospital, as well. it's not clear if other chances will be filed, but that's the latest that the authorities have released. as apparently mr. berry and another man got into an altercation, an argument that according to witnesses just started escalating when the shots were fired. multiple shots were fired that wounded the second person as well as that maintenance worker who was just standing nearby and was wounded in the leg. he is also being treated in the hospital, as well. so chaotic situation you can imagine for these students who were just going about their business on this campus. the the echos of all the different types of news stories that we've heard across the country frightened them tremendously as the shots were ringing out. >> one person charged. >> all of a sudden i heard backfiring and people started
2:06 am
running in the hallways. >> reporter: we're near the airport here in houston, so that was an airplane flying over as we were begin to go talk. but one of the witnesses talking yesterday said that it was bizarre how everything escalated so quickly and from the aller indications and some witnesses standing just a few feet away, they were trying to figure out how it could have escalated to something so serious when it didn't seem like it needed to get there. so that's one of the things that investigators will be looking at, as well. >> let's talk about gun laws because i know they're considering gun laws in texas that would allow swron to carry a concealed weapon on a campus. they can't do that now, right? >> reporter: it's interesting. the texas legislators have gone through this debate several times.
2:07 am
many years ago they passed a conceal handgun law where you can hear a handgun and that's what was used in this incident. but there are places where even despite having that license you you can't carry a handgun. churches and school campuses are one of those. ironically enough, there are lawmakers in austin that want to change that aspect of the concealed handgun law here in texas and allow students to carry guns on to campus. so we'll see how this plays out in that debate, as well. >> all right. ed lavendera, thanks so much. investigators say the new mexico teenager accused of murdering members of his family had hoped to go on a killing spree and die in a shoot-out with police. the 15-year-old was arrested saturday night after deputies found the bodies of his mother, father, brother and two of his sisters. the boy told investigators he was frustrated with his mother and hoped to he said his shooting spree inside a walmart store. authorities say the teen used a 22 caliber rifle and ar-15 sim

did beyonce fake it at the inauguration? conflicting reports still this morning. let's give one more listen. ♪ and the rockets red glare the bombs bursting in air gave proof through the night ♪
2:14 am
>> marine corps band stirred up t controversy. released this note, regarding her performance, no one in the marine band is in position to assess whether it was live or pre-recorded. still waiting for comment from beyonce. we did hear from reps for kelly clarkson and james taylor, they both confirmed those two artists did sing live. let's bring in john murray. do you think she was singing? >> i'm more surprised that kelly clarkson and james taylor actually sang live. it's an epic historic event. artists who air on the side of being perfect and caution in situations like this, you know, they want to give the best showing. people will be playing these
2:15 am
tapes for years and years to on come. most artists do pre-record vocals and she released photos of her pre-recording. but most do just in case the elements prevent you from being at your best so i'm not surprised that she did lip sync if she confirms that she had. >> the marine band offering conflicting accounts. earlier they said she lip siyn synced. they said it was determined that a live performance was ill advised. each piece of music scheduled for performance in the inauguration is pre-recorded for use in case of freezing temperatures, equipment failure, et cetera. you say it's pretty standard. and then she pulled out her earpiece which suggests some sort of feedback. some are saying was she singing to her own voice.
2:16 am
we just don't know. >> it could have been her lips wouldn't have synced up. but she's in great company. they've all lip synced at major events and we know they all can deliver live. >> this is someone who clearly has -- i mean, her pipes are excellent. anyone who has seen her life knows she can do the whole thing. which is why i think some are saying it was just one song in front of the president. it wasn't 10 degrees out. it was 30 degrees. why not just sing it. >> you know what nerves can do, but this is a singer who can
2:17 am
sing live. we're not talking britney spears or paula abdul. she sings live for a living. we know beyonce can do that. so i give her a pass. and she's been critical of singers who lip siync on shows because there you should sing live. >> the conflicting reports make the story still live. j john murray, nice to see you this morning. beyonce strangely silent up until this point only adding to the mystery. 16 minutes after the hour. we want to bring you up to speed on the headlines. from the upper midwest to the mid-atlantic, we're seeing and feeling the coldest temperatures so far this winter. it feels like 7 degrees in washington, d.c., near 0 in new york city and well below 0 in fargo, north dakota. blamed for at least four deaths so far. more than 300 firefighters

2:26 am
customers -- terrible mistake. if you're a shareholder, mighty apologize deeply. but we did have record results and life goes on. >> reporter: that was that big series of trades that cost jp more began billions of dollars he basically waved that off and said don't worry about it. he also talked about critics who say that the banking system is okay. jamie dimon has not only been golden child of the banking industry, but one who has stood up in defense of the banking sector. he said it's not opaque, it's complicated and he followed it with the the line you don't understand how aircraft engines work either, do you. so it seemed a little flippant. you don't have to actually know how aircraft engines work. you have to know that they're going to work and when they stop working, you investigate them a little more closely. so his comments were a little
2:27 am
surprising this morning. >> i would call that vintage jamie dimon, too. okay. let's ask you about eric cantor. he's heading to davos today. >> reporter: yeah. so the republicans are going to vote on suspending the debt ceiling which is lot of people think it's a good idea to do forever. they won't have much opposition with that. and cantor with a conessional delegation, they'll come over to davos, he'll be in a panel on friday, and we'll talk to him when he gets here about the budget, about the debt ceiling debacle in the united states and about whether or not america with sort of capture this economic dinahism that you say talk about so much in the face of all of these problems going on in washington, the congress and inability to get anything done. can we actually overcome that and have a great year. >> all right. ali velshi? davos. thank you. so nice to see you. so interesting, too, they talk

2:33 am
at least four reports of deaths now. jennifer, any relief on the way? >> we'll see a slight warm up, but temperatures dangerously cold. we're still talking some locations where it will be minus 35. if you're heading out the door in duluth, it feels a little bit better 2there. 7 in minneapolis. minus 1 in des moines. in chicago, the current windchill at 0. but you still need to dress warmly. new england including montpelier, it feels like minus 22 degrees. so, yes, we're talking about another day where temperatures well below freezing. but still we have these advisers in place, spreading from parts of the upper midwest. you can see from parts of minneapolis as well as other parts of the dakotas, all the way over towards new england where we have in fact a windchill warning.
2:34 am
this is going to be in place until this evening. so certainly you have to bundle up out there. this could lead to frost bite and even deaths through parts of the midwest as well as areas of the northeast. you want to know when we'll see improvement. look for areas like minneapolis. they know how to deal with the snow. they bundle up and make sure they protect their face and their hands and their clothes. that's where you lose the most body heat. and we're also talking about more lake-effect snow setting up for parts of new york as well as pennsylvania, michigan, you name it. >> today is the day for that ski mask. may not be glamorous, but wear it anyway. jennifer, thanks very much. >> every snowbird is just gig link right now. this is why they go down south. secretary of state hillary clinton expected to face tough questions this morning about
2:35 am
security failures of the u.s. diplomatic compound this benghazi. no bombshells really. jill dougherty is at the state department this morning. what's the latest, jill? >> reporter: well, in the aftermath of benghazi, there have been 30 hearings closed door briefings. but this is by far the most high profile and it's one of the last things that hillary clinton will be doing as secretary of state. on the evening of long a wait system by hillary clinton, new state department cables, sources telling cnn's jake tapper that investor chris stevens killed in the attack once proposed moving the mission where he died to a more secure location near a cia compound. but the department refused. >> what did the secretary of state know before, during and after? because the american people were clearly deceived.
2:36 am
>> aides say she's likely to repeat what she told cnn in october. >> day responsibility. i'm in charge of the state department. 60,000 plus people all over the world, 275 posts. are the she was the first top official to brief the full senate in closed session. since then, there have been more than 30 hearings and closed door briefings with state department officials present. but clinton's testimony was delayed by travel and by illness. >> she needs to be asked about what she knew about the deteriorating circumstances in benghazi, did she see the cable, was she informed of the rise of al qaeda militia. >> reporter: that cable warned the u.s. mission in benghazi was not secure enough to survive a coordinated attack. other senators claim clinton's state department has not handed over all communications on benghazi. >> the texting, the instant messaging, we really need to have a look at that, which we
2:37 am
haven't seen yet. >> reporter: others want to know what clinton knows about those misleading talking points, that u.n. ambassador susan rice used in the september 16th sunday talk show, and why clinton herself didn't appear instead. clinton is likely to tell congress how she has already ordered inch ple men it tags of recommendations from review, tightened security at posts worldwide, and sent threat analysts to over a dozen posts. will congress give hillary clinton a hard time? >> i'm sure she won't be beaten up. she's highly respected by everyone on the committee. >> reporter: but it may not be that easy. and there are a couple of other things to watch. one would be the political atmospherics of this. because in the senate, there are at least two people who potentially could be gop candidates for 2016 and that of course is what might happen with
2:38 am
secretary clinton. and then of course you have this issue of the security backing if you want to call it in algeria and mali. and there might be some questioning on that, as well. >> political atmospherics. always that, isn't there. thank you, jill. big day on capitol hill today. meanwhile also on the hill, house republicans shifting strategy. they say they believe they have the votes to pass a short term debt ceiling increase today and seek deep intending cuts later. their plan was to spend the $16.4 trillion debt limit to allow the u.s. to keep borrowing money to pay its bills for another three months, then increase the legal limit to that new debt level. confusing but important politically. in exchange they're calling on the senate to pass a budget by spring. >> rimportant chess move in the debt talks. exit polls from tuesday's election in israel show netanyahu will almost certainly hold on to his job. the surprising surge of a new

>> if you just like -- if you ultimate yourself into a position where you're going to not see the sunshine every day or just like one step at a time, and, you know, it's intense. and nobody realizes that the easiness of just one step, you know. and so i think that obviously she wants to help you. she will see anybody on the street and it's like -- she'll talk to anybody. >> i got to tell you, i spent a lot of time with her daughter, langley, yesterday. and one of mariel's goals is to dispel the myth of the curse of the hemingways. and her daughter is so incredibly well adjusted, she's so proud of her mom and all the good work that cease doing on mental health and depression. and she's so proud that she took the time to tell her story and to really dig as deep as she did. so it was really a great experience and i told mariel you've done a great job with your kid. >> such a famous family.
2:45 am
really interesting to see their bearing their souls for the whole word to see. there is big news about one of the other films at sundance. tell us about this. >> big news is probably an understatement p. because this is potentially $10 million news. and it's the reason filmmakers come here. they want people to see their films, they want people to buy their films. is the film is called way, way back. and it's being compared to little miss sunshine which was a darling here at the sundance festival some years back. the two directors are the same directors that won an oscar for the descendancenscendants just . so a lot of buzz and who knows what the potential is. some are thinking it could bes on oscar worthy. we have not confirmed that it is purchased by sony, but that is the buzz. >> on the cutting edge of the film news. great to see you this morning.

cte in its most severe cases has memory problem, depression and anger. so not just whether or not the protein is present, but whether it's present in the parts of the brain responsible to though emotions. the lead researcher said he found it in all five players in the study, ta thauchlt until u be seen after death. >> what pathologists have seen is little tau deposits. >> reporter: small is cautiously optimistic that this brain scan will eventually diagnose cte in living people. >> it's a step forward, but it's a baby step. because it's not specific to tau. >> reporter: robert stern, a cte expert at the boston university school of medicine, is a bit more skeptical. he says small's brain scan doesn't just measure tau, it measures another protein called
2:53 am
am ma amel oichlt chlt dichlt which is present in all timer's disease. >> we don't know if its he tau or both. >> reporter: could the players be suffering from cte, always timer's or did other disease? so as you can see, the study is far from conclusive. but if it does pan out, if could give us a better idea of what cte looks like, how it progresses over the years and maybe even how to treat it. dr. small who you just met in the piece there has done a lot of work in the world of alzheimer's, and he wonders if some of the same interventions could also work for cte. reducing stress, improved diet, anti-inflammatorie anti-inflammatories. it will be a while before can he test the hypothesis, but that's what dr. small and lots of others are angling toward.

kinzinger. what is the one question you want to have her answer? >> look -- good morning. i'm a major in the air force, air national guard. i still fly. and one of the early things i learned as a pilot. your country will be there to support you, and what i'm curious about, there were two basically separate attacks in this that happened and there was a seven-hour lull between the first and second. the question, why were assets not put overhead during that lull, during that time. when we could have had support? that's a big question. the other big thing was this. we were told immediately after the attack, this was the result of the youtube video i heard the secretary herself say it. even during the attack, members of the state department knew, in fact, this was a terrorist attack and knew there were terrorist organizations claiming responsibility. it will be a very respectful hearing. i respect the secretary's service to her country. the american people deserve a
3:36 am
lot of answers to what's going on. >> an independent accountabl accountableability review board, did not find that any individual u.s. government employee engaged in misconduct or willfully ignored his or her responsibilities and, therefore, did not find reasonable cause to believe that an individual breached his or her duty as to be the subject of a recommendation for disciplinary action. you want more than that? >> i do. we need to ask who knew what and when. was she briefed what was going on? what information did the white house have? the white house would have been the folks that could have dispatched any kind of dod, department of defense assets overhead to prevent further attacks, or to save personnel under fire. i think there are a lot of questions, and, again, the day after we were told this was a youtube video, and we knew otherwise. so it does leave questions as to what we are being told. a respectful hearing, but we need to have answers to this.
3:37 am
and the american people deserve it. a number of months, four americans unfortunately were killed in this process. we need to ensure accountability, and is it doesn't happen again in the future. >> david petraeus says multiple streams of intelligence from different sources and that may be where the confusion lies. that's not a satisfying answer? >> it's not. look, when you have e-mails sent among department personnel saying a group is claiming responsibility for this, calling it a terrorist attack and then we fin out later this was, in fact, a terrorist attack, in a short amount of time, i'm curious as to why it was so quickly blamed on a youtube video, when the reality that a youtube video would spark mass protest, organize an attack against our embassy, doesn't make a lot of sense. it is a question as to why that was the result. was administration trying to downplay the seriousness of the
3:38 am
attack prior to the election? did that have a role to play in the fact that military assets weren't put overhead, whether it's an f-16 that can see what's on the ground or do nonviolent maneuvers that f-16s can do to disperse crowds. our responsibility to get to the bottom of it. >> a day a lot of people have been waiting for. house side, 2:00 p.m., we know you will be there. >> thanks. have a good day. and shifting strategy in debt negotiations. they believe they have the votes to pass a short-term debt increase today and seek deep spending cuts later. their plan would suspend the $16.4 trillion debt limit to allow the u.s. to pay bills for another three months and increase the legal limit to whatever you the new debt level would be. and they are calling on the senate to pass a budget by spring. >> wayne la pierre has accused
